Anybody here claim to live a hedonistic life? A decadent lifestyle? For the sake of this thread, hedonism is defined as pleasure - pain being the ultimate goal in life as well as living solely for your own benefit (whether or not you actually help people), just so there's no need to be pedantic . Any thoughts, positive or negative, on this lifestyle?

It's true but not really true. I guess I'm down with that lifestyle, but not really down either. I guess I am quite apathetic toward hedonism. If that's what floats your boat, more power to ya brah. Drink a few more beers and smoke a few more blunts, call a couple a girls, fuck a couple a _____.

Negatives, you may not have people to lean back on if you fall and change your mind.

Positives, it's fun as shit. (till you get jailed or broke >_> )

we are all hedonistic to some extent. but personal pleasure in that moment above all else is a terribly stupid way to live.

indulgence, alright. but megalomania? nah man.

Epicureanism is a moderate kind of hedonism, except instead of trying to obtain as much pleasure as possible, one tries to do things that are to avoid pain, and the requires one to not take in some pleasures that will cause long term pain.

My last ex was very hedonistic. She also cheated on me twice before I found out. Fuck hedonism.

People may find pleasure through helping others. Hedonism isn't all "I'm just gonna smoke weed and drink beer and **** everyone else because that's what I want."

Haven't you read The Picture of Dorian Gray? Hedonism is so not cool. You'll eventually stab yourself in the heart and that's so not cool.

Pretty much. Hedonism can encompass a lot of actions. Utilitarianism seems a bit closer to what you're saying to me, (not a philosophy major so if anyone is more knowledgeable, please correct me) but that could still technically be hedonism.

Well, in the grand scheme of things, hedonism is just doing what you like. Whether that's helping people, drinking Monsters in your underwear during a COD sesh, or taking drugs. Some people get their kicks from altruism, others from a triple stack of ecstasy.
